Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Was Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s escape from a Mexican prison last weekend predicted by messages on Twitter? Did the Mexican drug lord really use Twitter to threaten Donald Trump?

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Despite its enormous distance from the sun and ultra-low temperatures, Pluto appears to be a remarkably active world, with young, partially eroded craters, broad icy regions with very different compositions and a tenuous atmosphere that constantly escapes into space, scientists said Tuesday.
